Event description

Description

Opening reception will be on Friday, November 8 starting at 7pm (remarks and performances at 7:30pm and 9pm). VIVO is open from 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. No One Turned Away for Lack of Funds.

Picture this - a world where AI invades human creativity, bacteria invade our brains, and invisible technological signals penetrate all natural environments. Where invasive species from plants to humans transform spaces where they don't belong, technology infiltrates every aspect of our daily lives, and the waste of human inventions ravages our natural environments.

That world is here, and the time is now. Can we recognize and better understand how these invasive systems transform or become part of our world? Through visual art, multimedia installations, and interactive experiences, join artists and scientists at "Collisions Festival: Invasive Systems" to explore the delicate and complicated nature of how both living and inanimate things redefine our lives and environments.

This weekend festival includes:

  • An art-science exhibition showcasing collaborative works by three artist/scientist pairs, and independent works by six artists.
  • Opening night reception with performances by Edzi’u (Fri)
  • A hands-on workshop on DNA sonification **separate registration required (Sat)
  • Curator’s tours (3:15-3:45pm) & guided discussions (4-4:45pm) with festival curator Char Hoyt (Creative Director, Curoisity Collider) (Sat/Sun)

Artist/Scientist Collabs: Laara Cerman & Scott Pownall, Dzee Louise & Linda Horianopoulos, Kathryn Wadel & Garth Covernton

Participating Artists: Christian Dahlberg, Chris Dunnett, Edzi’u, Twyla Exner, Joanne Hastie, Katrina Wong.
